Social and Political Philosophy: A Free Online Course

From John Sanders, Pro­fes­sor of Phi­los­o­phy at the Rochester Insti­tute of Tech­nol­o­gy, comes the course, Social and Polit­i­cal Phi­los­o­phy. In 10 lec­tures, Sanders “exam­ines some of the main prob­lems of social and polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy through an analy­sis, com­par­i­son and crit­i­cal exam­i­na­tion of var­i­ous views con­cern­ing the natures of indi­vid­u­al­i­ty and soci­ety and the rela­tions between them.” Thinkers cov­ered include Aris­to­tle, Hobbes, Locke, Mills, Marx, Engels, Hayek and Rawls. You can stream all the lec­tures above, or find them all on this YouTube playlist.

Social and Polit­i­cal Phi­los­o­phy will be added to our list of Free Phi­los­o­phy Cours­es, a sub­set of our col­lec­tion, 1,700 Free Online Cours­es from Top Uni­ver­si­ties.
